No dramas. I thought we had a misunderstanding there. :)

What can I do to correct the lambda delay in the logs?

AFAIK you can't, as the logs should reflect what the MS sees.

MS3 now has a large delay table for accurate closed loop mixture control, so its a good idea...
... but that's an interesting idea to propose to the TS/MLV author.

Have been taunting him to come up with a tool to automagically create the delay tables for years.
He admits its needed, we shall see.
I, for one, regularly embrace our new robot overlords, as I am the guy fixing the robots...

Have just come home from family holidays in Robertson, NSW. Lovely spot. Quite cold (although madmike would laugh at me). As usual, when the cats away, I got thinking about just finishing the rotten thing and selling it. However, I went on a beer run this afternoon. Man it's fun. It's peppy even before it gets on boost. I'm really pleased I pulled all the fuel out of the WUE. It's so, much, better! :)

I did manage to fiddle with my fuel maps as per PD suggested while I was away. Today's drive hasn't seemed to change much how things looked though as far as falling off boost at higher revs. Hmmm...

Not your sort of cold, but it didn't make double figures celcius during the daytime. So around 48F. Yeah, I'm soft.

I thought you might say something like that! :)

BTW, quick message to everyone.

The Jerks at PHOTOBUCKET have chosen to try and charge me US ONE HUNDRED DOLLARS per year to share pics with you. So many of the pics in this thread are now not showing up. I'm pretty frustrated. The photo album is here. Sorry for the inconvenience.

Spent half the day under the car reindexing the back suspension to get rid of my positive camber. Got a racing event on Saturday evening and I'd rather not end up on my lid (although experience tells that's very unlikely).

This trans mount arrived yesterday. Of course when I went to install it today, it didn't fit. Dang!

The flange isn't tall enough to reach the trans bolts. :(

No it won't, that's why berg list two different ones, ask me how I know.....oh well 50/50 chance, you could try modifying the one you have and put an extension in there, just remember to give a little preload to the pads

Oh just to let you know, fitting a late trans with a bus nose cone give you a free trans raise :lol:

Try jacking the car up with the jack on the mount, maybe it will compress them pads enough to bolt on?

I could do that, but then I reckon I'd have issues with the front mount tearing in half. I'll mod this one or use is as a very expensive template. :(

In other news, just dropped the car back down onto the wheels. 14deg of preload gave me 2 deg of negative camber. I love it when a plan comes off. And the torsion bars have new (rubber) bushes installed too. :)

Yeah, I'm pretty confident I won't be able to get reverse (or any other gear) at all if the trans moves down enough to get the new mount on. ;)
